Aussie cricket star Ellyse Perry has stopped play to check on an injured spectator after hitting the youngster with a six in the WBBL.
The champion allrounder finished unbeaten on 91 from 49 balls in the Sydney Sixers' opening match of the new season at North Sydney Oval on Saturday.

However a six that she struck in the final over hit a young fan in the face.
As you can see in the video above, a concerned Perry stopped play during the over and immediately rushed to check on the spectator's health, calling for medical assistance.
A Cricket Australia statement issued on Saturday evening said the fan was treated immediately at the scene by first aid staff.
Paramedics were called and made a decision to transport him to nearby Royal North Shore Hospital for further observation and an ambulance was called.
Fellow spectator Brad McGuiness told News Corp the ball ricocheted off a seat and hit the boy in the face.
“He started screaming,” McGuiness said. “He had glasses on, I think it hit him just below the glasses."
“It was a solid hit. It hit the chair and instead of taking the heat off it went quicker."
Perry's actions were reminiscent of a similar incident involving Rafael Nadal last year.
The Spanish tennis star brought play to a halt while serving in an exhibition match so a distraught mother could find her lost child.
Fans immediately took to social media to praise Perry for her actions.

Sadly someone's been hit by the ball at North Sydney. Who leaves her crease and comes to the rescue? Ellyse Perry. They've stopped play to check the person is okay. Fingers crossed nothing serious. #WBBL03— Brittany Carter (@_BrittanyCarter) December 9, 2017

Ellyse Perry going straight over to check on the welfare of the spectator(s). What a fantastic, good natured human she is #WBBL03— Dan Hanney ⚽✈ (@DanHanney) December 9, 2017
Jeez, you've gotta feel for Ellyse Perry. She hasn't done anything wrong but she's obviously distraught. Looked like she actively avoided trying to clear the rope for those last three deliveries. #WBBL03— Jon Healy (@JonHealy) December 9, 2017
The second match of a double-header to kick off the new WBBL season got off to a dramatic start, with the Sixers setting a competition record of 4-242, eclipsing by 42 runs the previous best of 6-200 set a few hours earlier by neighbours Sydney Thunder in their 45-run win over Melbourne Renegades.
Sixers' Australian representative Ashleigh Gardner smashed a competition-high individual score of 114 of 52 balls, slamming 10 sixes and nine fours.
